Charleston, SC (PRWEB) December 03, 2014
Herbert Drayton, Chief Executive Officer for CCOH (Carolina Center for Occupational Health), recently spoke at the NCCHC 2014 National Conference on Correctional Health Care in Las Vegas, on October 18-22, 2014.
Drayton has spent the last ten years growing CCOH, initially a Charleston based Family Medicine practice to a Family Medicine and Occupational Medicine practice with 400 corporate clients on the occupational health side. CCOH’s occupational health growth has been attributed to Drayton’s multi-discipline and multi-site medical services approach. This approach is the topic of his speech to the NCCHC “Becoming a Nationally Recognized Patient-Centered Medical Home.”
The Carolina Center for Occupational Heath is the medical services provider for the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center in Charleston, SC. The 24/7 medical services, CCOH provides psychiatric and dental services on site. The care also includes the only jail licensed infirmary in the state of South Carolina. There are more than 40,000 monthly patient encounters, and checklists help ensure operational tasks are completed in a timely manner to ensure care is not compromised.
Two years ago Drayton realized the need to streamline operational efficiencies and developed a software application, OpsAssure, to do so. Drayton improved implementation of policies and procedures, stocking of inventory, medical protocols, and reporting with the introduction of OpsAssure. Drayton’s success in using OpsAssure to automate staffing and tasks is the topic of another speech to the NCCHC “Using Checklists to Improve Operations.”
“I am honored to expose CCOH’s success utilizing OpsAssure to other correctional healthcare institutions as it has changed the way we do business and minimized tracking and reporting loopholes, increasing our productivity” – Herbert Drayton, Chief Executive Officer for CCOH.
